A crass, simple-minded and dumb film.
Jack kicks plenty of butt, and the film has some neat little twists and turns to keep things interesting - and an ending the really has some guts.
It's interesting to compare "Billy Jack" and "Born Losers," and see how star/director Tom Laughlin tweaked the formula between films. "Born Losers" has minimal karate, and there's little sense of Laughlin having any serious training in the discipline. He also hadn't quite nailed down his signature gimmick of smiling patiently in the face of provocation, and making the audience anticipate the coming meltdown. Billy Jack still faces anti-Injun prejudice, but "Born Losers" doesn't add elements of Indian culture like later Billy Jack vehicles. "Born Losers" also has less of a rousing, anti-establishment feel, because Billy Jack is mostly vying with loathsome outlaw bikers rather than everyday townsfolk.
On the positive side, "Born Losers" is much less preachy and pretentious, and cute lead actress Elizabeth James is more appealing than Laughlin's later co-star (and wife) Delores Taylor.
Billy Jack is awesome, I think this is my favourite of the series, it has Billy fighting bikers who are making trouble for a girl. It's pretty cool, check it out.
First appearance of Billy Jack isn't as preachy and more action based.
